I've had a life long rule of never tying a fly that was sufficiently difficult to complete to the point that I became emotionally invested in it. This has been an easy rule for me to live by because even when I strive for exact imitation, my flies invariably come out as impressionistic...:)

But the plus side is that I have over 40 years of experience in turning out some of the most inadvertently impressionistic flies anywhere...:)
